We’ve been to the kitchenÂ and theÂ bathroomÂ from an organizational point of view – but I want to talk about it from a health POV too, because I’ve made a lot of changes in this line to try to improve.
I’ve always been vaguely eco-conscious. Then a couple of years ago I got a natural-beauty client, which made me do a lot more research. Having people I care about go through cancer made me think about what we expose ourselves to every day. And recently I foundÂ that cute DIY blogÂ and a lot of easy tips on there. So it’s been a long but perfect storm to make me think green.
I’m definitely not crunchy-granola or dirty-hippie, but my inexpert philosophy is pretty simple. Everybody agrees that there are a bunch of triggers for poor health. Some you can eliminate easily, some would take a crazy amount of effort, some you can’t do anything about. Well, I can’t fix my genes, and I’m not living off the land, but I can do a lot of little things that sure won’t hurt.
The changes I’ve made in my bathroom to go for healthier options fall into two categories: using different stuff, or using less stuff. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far.
